Relax but don’t drift. Be deliberate when you change direction or position. Listen to the wind. Understand focal information and peripheral information. Maintain spatial orientation. Avoid open patches of sun. Use the wind or rain to cover the noise of your movement. Close your mouth to eliminate teeth shine. Keep your eyes squinted to avoid glistening.

A performance featuring Jim Fletcher and Christina Campanella (voice), with sound design by George Monteleone.
